Soccer-St Etienne fans evacuated from Nice stands after trouble


NICE, Nov 24 (Reuters) - St Etienne fans were evacuated from Nice's Allianz Arena stadium on Sunday after they threw seats at the local supporters.

An hour before the kickoff of the Ligue 1 game between Nice and Les Verts, the away fans dismantled their seats and threw them towards their Nice counterparts, Reuters witnessed.

Stadium stewards unsuccessfully tried to calm them down, with police then moving into the stands to evacuate the St Etienne fans, who numbered about one hundred. (Reporting by Etienne Ballerini; Writing by Julien Pretot; Editing by Alison Wildey)
